    Issue 2 As a result of feedback from centres we have made changes. This version is Issue 2 and key changes are indicated by a sideline.

    The sample assessment materials have been developed to give you and your students a fl avour of the actual exam papers and mark schemes so they can experience what they will encounter in their live assessments. They feature:

    • Accessible papers using a mixture of question styles. We’ve worked hard to ensure the papers are easy to follow with an encouraging tone so that the full range of students can show what they know.

    • Clear and concise mark schemes for each paper outlining what examiners will be looking for in the assessments, so you can use the sample papers with students to help them prepare for the real thing.

    • Supported controlled assessment, including sample controlled assessment materials to show you the sort of activity students will undertake. Used in conjunction with the guidance in the Teacher’s Guide, these samples will help you manage the controlled assessment in your centre and help students achieve their best.

    General Marking Guidance

    All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the first

    candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last.

    Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for

    what they have shown they can do rather than penalised for omissions.

    Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not according to their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.

    There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark scheme should be used

    appropriately.

    All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded. Examiners should

    always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the mark scheme.

    Examiners should also be prepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of credit according to the mark scheme.

    Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide the principles by

    which marks will be awarded and exemplification may be limited.

    When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to a

    candidate’s response, the team leader must be consulted.

    Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate has replaced it with an alternative response.

    Mark schemes will indicate within the table where, and which strands of QWC,

    are being assessed. The strands are as follows:

    i) ensure that text is legible and that spelling, punctuation and grammar are accurate so that meaning is clear

    ii) select and use a form and style of writing appropriate to purpose and to complex subject matter

    iii) organise information clearly and coherently, using specialist vocabulary when appropriate.
